carving down

Well, we have a new direction per/ say. We were thinking of going with Bethany Christian services for the adoption and then Adopt Abroad for the home study, but alas the Lord has given us answers as to who we should go with.

Our home study is set for June, and its been said it could be 2 weeks to 2 years. What a huge gap, but we know that the Lord will bring us our children at His time. Yep- you got it- I said children as we are opening our home to siblings. We are hoping that our social worker approves us having 2 kids, but that is still up in the air till june.

The Lord is carving down desires and narrowing the focus. I am a part of a website that has waiting kids, and I recently received an email about a little girl waiting for a forever family. They are hoping to find a family for her by August otherwise she will be sent back to the orphanage and all the progress she has made would be for naught. This tugged at my heart, but I know any profile I read will tug at it. I am trusting in the Lord to guide us to the child, children that he has for us.

Thanks for praying and listening!

Agency met, and we are underway

hey there to all the bloggers of the internet.
Saturday we met our agency and it went very well. There has been an email sent to set up appointment for our homestudy. Beth is our social worker, and we met the founder of the agency. We were able to ask lots of questions and find out time lines, real issues that would arise, and just really an honest look at what we are about to dive into. As most of you know thats the type of thing I like, the realness. So I was very happy about hearing the good, amazing, bad and ugly.
They gave the process that we would go through thru the US foster care system. We are excited as Dan and I process'd lots together afterwards and still are.
We don't know what hope haas looks like, or what hope haas' looks like, but we know they are being prayed for, and God is moving in them and around them for our special meeting.

I didn't take photos which usually I do, but I was so excited to hear and see what was going on.

thanks for journeying with us together as this could be a long process or then it could be fast. But please pray for God's timing.

meeting the adgency

Tomorrow is the day that we have waited for since we started praying about adoption. It is a big step meeting the Agency we are going to work with. Please pray as tomorrow we go through seminars and gather countless information items. Pray that we will be clear, and that we will walk in faith with the Lord. I will write afterward as I try to debrief what happened.
